Guest designer for CKC

When Jemma asked me to be a guest designer for CKC this month I was really excited. I had been a bit quiet on the scrapping front as have been doing a lot of crocheting lately and I thought this is just what I need to get back into my scrapbooking. YAY :)
I headed straight to my craft room and then realised why it had been a while:(
 I couldn't even sit down...

A couple of weeks ago I found a blank canvas and decided to make something of it. Problem is I don't really know what so this has just been sitting there waiting for inspiration to hit & taking up my entire desk in the process. Time for a BIG clean up. I even shouted myself a brand new craft mat for the occassion. The old one was well over 10 years old, they are definately worth it. I decided to ease myself back into it by starting with some cards (I can't show you those yet as they are for the blog hop) but boy oh boy, once I started there was no stopping me! I finished 3, yep you read that right, a big 3 layouts in ONE day. Ok so the dishes didn't get done but the beds were made.
So to get things started we had a super choice of three kits to base our conterfeit on. The originals were from Quirky Kits & are shown here. I ended up combining a few elements from each & because the first kit was called "It's a party" & I was a wee bit excited to be guest designer and scrapping again, I called my kit "Party @ my place". And here it is...

I find I dont scrap with a lot of papers anymore so concentrated on more embellie elements.
Well I better stop there so you have time to move onto the other designers. Here is the link to get to Just Jimjams and also back to CKC.
Have a wonderful day and hope you will pop back on the 6th for my first reveal..Jx

Scrapbook Boutique April challenge

I really am a feast or a famine when it comes to blogging. Once I get started I am fine but when I drop off, well... that's it for some time so it would seem :D
Todays share is for the Scrapbook Boutique monthly challenge and is my second soft & girly lo in a row...
This particular photo has been hanging around for quite some time (about 5 years in fact!) waiting to be scrapped but this challenge was just right and I am pleased with the final result.
Here is a link to the challenge and the mood board...

Isn't is just delightful?
Well I am off to make some cards for a girlfriend now so who know when I will back??
Have a great day..Jx

SOS April challenge

And here is another one. This lo if for the challenge at Scrap Our Stash. Haven't done one of these for a long time but despite my lack of blogging I have been getting quite a bit of scrapping done and although I wasn't too sure about how this was going to come together when I started, I am very happy with the end result. Phew ;)
I took my inspo from the colours which were fun & not a combination I would normally play with and got plenty of clouds in with my die cuts, tag & brad.
Here is the link and the inpiration board...

D-Lish April challenge

Hello there. It has definately been awhile since my last blog and decided today was the day to fix that. I completed this lo about a week ago and if I didn't do something soon I would miss the challenge altogether! The D-Lish kit this month was so soft and girly that I just had to use this photo of my dd taken at her big brothers wedding. The photograher caught this moment & I just love it...

I had a lot of fun putting this lo together, probably because my gorgeous girl is not always so girly these days but I think even she loved being dressed up on this day.
Here is the link & the mood board at D-Lish.

Hope you are having a wonderful day & thanks for popping by..Jx
